Construction Delay Analysis and Reporting
This Software is provided as a service. It enables Instant Reporting of the status of Construction Delay and Progress. It estimates the construction delays upon project late finish. And it explores the Responsibility shares for delays if any.
A simple way to find actual encountered construction delays at any time during the course of Construction as well as an estimation of the probable total delay upon completion of the work.
You can run the reporting Software monthly, for a close follow up of the delay status. Then you can take necessary corrective action. Timely action helps avoiding delay consequences.
The Produced Analysis can help assess Extension of Time Claims and associated Loss and expense Claims.

The Software Output
The Software output will be brief report with graphical representation showing:
- Actual encountered delay as on Cut-Off Date.
- Estimated Delay upon finishing all Construction works
- Estimated Date of Completion of the Construction work (An Update of the initial estimate)
- A brief Analysis of delays encountered within the period investigated.
[How much Slow performance accounts for the delays and how much Disruption does.]
Concept and Calculations
How the Software woks?
- The Construction Delay Analysis and Reporting Software is hosted on server. No download is required on your part. It is provided as a service.
- At the background, four S-curves are drawn; two at the beginning and two at the end of the month ending at Cut-Off date.
- The two S-curves at Cut-Off Date will be shown on the graph, and the other two will only have their effect on calculations.
One S-curve is similar to the original plan but shifted to the right, representing case of disruption to the construction works by actions beyond control of the Contractor .
The other S-curve, will have the actual progress point on it, but will have a different duration to be calculated such that the S-curve characteristics are respected.
- The two curves at the end of the investigated month will determine range of probable total delay upon Fulfillment of the Contract Obligations.
- The two curves at the beginning of the investigated month will determine how close actual progress at the end of the month is to either of them.
- Having worked out proportions of closeness we apply these to the range of probable delay to determine the most probable completion date of the works.
The S-curve analysis is a method that has been developed and found to be useful in practice. The analysis concludes that in the typical Construction project, the cost accrual assumes the following pattern:
- Within the first third of the project duration, the costs accumulate in a parabolic pattern. This achieves one quarter of costs at one third of Construction duration
- Within the second third of the Construction duration, the costs accumulate in a linear fashion such that at two thirds of project duration, the accumulated costs total three quarters of the project total costs.
- Within the final third of project duration, the cost accumulation is a mirror image of the first third duration. This achieves 100% at physical completion
Substantial Completion of the Works
Determining just when substantial completion of Construction works occurs is usually litigious. The standard analysis finds the event triggered when the owner can occupy a structure and use it for its intended purpose.
Extension Of Time
The Contractor shall be entitled for an extension of the time for Completion if delay results from any of the following causes:
- A variation or Change Order unless the corresponding adjustment has been already agreed in the Change Order
- Exceptionally adverse climatic conditions
- Unforeseeable shortages in the availability of personnel or materials caused by a governmental action.
- Any delay, impediment or prevention caused by or attributable to the Employer, his personnel, or his other contractors on site.
The Contractor Default
The Slow Performance is assumed a Failure of the Contractor to achieve the rate of performance that would ensure Completion on due date.
This inferior productivity can be a result of employing incompetent staff, inadequate capacity of equipments, etc.
The Owner Default
Disruption to the work is considered as a condition beyond control of the Contractor. Therefore the consequences of disruption should be borne by the Owner. Examples of disruption are unforeseen physical conditions, riots, exceptional climatic conditions, delay in issuance of drawings.
The Delay Damages
If the Contractor fails to comply with the contract obligation to complete the work with the time stipulated in the contract he shall pay delay damages to the employer for this default.
Under the FIDIC conditions, these delay damages shall be stated in the Tender documents.
Moreover, payment of delay damages shall not relieve the Contractor from his obligation to complete the work, or from any other obligation, duty, or responsibility which he may have under the contract.
